Modern cx bikes seem to be salami sliced by marketeers into cx race, gravel, adventure, etc etc. A doitall cx bike equipped with rack and fender eyelets is good for almost everything. Disk brakes are a useful modern option but ensure that the rear brake is mounted to the horizontal chainstay so it can play well with rack and fenders.
This style of bike is more practical than a road bike, more agile than most touring bikes and lighter and sportier than most hybrid and mtb bikes.
I like to think of them as bicycles rather than a specific type of bike becsuse they can do everything well enough.
